I have an old version of Lightroom 3 which always worked just fine.  I recently had to upgrade to Windows 10 and now my Lightroom does not recogize, import or convert to DNG those files.  Does anyone have a work around or ideas as to how I can fix this issue.  I tried to download the free Adobe DNG converter, but that link is not working for some reason.

Please post your System Information as Lightroom Classic (LrC) reports it. In LrC click on Help, then System Info, then Copy. Paste that information into a reply. Please present all information from first line down to and including Plug-in Info. Info after Plug-in info can be cut as that is just so much dead space to us non-Techs.

The "old version of Lightroom 3" does not support raw files from the D800. ! SUPPORTED CAMERAS 

You would need at a minimum the 'old' version 4.1 (2012).  10 Years of Lightroom | The Lightroom Queen 

Unless you subscribe to v10 Lr-Classic, the Converter is your only option!

The download link to the DNG Converter is working for me- try again.

DNG LEGACY SUPPORT

"Old" Lr3 will never "convert" files to DNG- the Converter does that BEFORE you Import the DNGs to the Catalog.

 

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 10.1, Photoshop 22.1, Lightroom 4.1, Windows-10 Nikon DSLR.
